Our People

ouryards people01

The key to our success lies in our people and the skills they bring to each and every project.

We pride ourselves on our commitment to enhance the skills and knowledge of our people. We empower them to be actively involved in identifying and driving their career development through on-the-job experience as well as internal and external formal training through our extensive range of training programs.

At our Batam, Thailand and Dubai facilities we employ a highly skilled local and foreign workforce with the support of experienced international management.

We provide our people with an environment that ensures safety is the number one priority and we invest the time and money in our people to ensure our people are the best they can be.

We believe in honesty, respect and equitable treatment for all, without compromise.

Our Safety

ouryards safety02

Safety isn't a word or a brand, a label or a sign, it's a way of thinking. We have exactly the same high level and belief in workplace health and safety in our Batam, Thailand and Dubai facilities as we maintain throughout our group in every country that we operate.

We are certified to OSHAS 18001 by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance.

You can't buy safety and "just ticking the box" won't do either. Safety has to be instilled from the moment a new employee enters our doors, from the moment our workers step out of their house in the morning, from the moment we meet you at our gate.

Our company's core value is that everybody goes home without harm at the end of the day.

We commit to providing a safe work environment for all employees every single day, and to ensure that the right safe work practices, safety training and supervision are in place to eliminate the possibility of incident or injury.

We won't compromise on safety. It's as simple as that. It is, after all, our people that drive our business.

Our Quality

We believe in building it better. We've invested in our company wide Integrated Management System for over a decade. We pride ourselves in continuous improvement through internal and external audit regimes.

We are certified to ISO 9001 / 14001 by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance.

We work hard to identify the cost of poor quality and to ensure all our processes and tasks, no matter where they occur, provide the best quality results for ourselves and also our clients.

With established systems for material management, welding, steel fabrication, pipe spooling, pre-casting, module assembly and testing & commissioning, we always know exactly where your project is at.

With open and clear transparency, we share our databases and systems across all our jobs to ensure quality is at the forefront of everything we do. We review, report, and learn, never shirking from the goal of company-wide continuous improvement. We are committed to getting it right the first time.
